Japan H1 car sales trends 2017 hybrid countryJapan world’s biggest market for home-grown petrol-electric hybrids 

AID investigates this year’s Japanese car sales trends and finds that Toyota’s home market still stands out as the world’s way and ahead biggest market for petrol-electric hybrid (HEVs) cars. Put into perspective, this first half Japan’s HEV market was more than three-times the size of its direct US HEV equivalent, which like Japan and Europe remains dominated by Toyota Group products

CV van sales 2018 EuropeVans outperform both cars and trucks this first half 

The market for light commercial vehicles up to 3.50t GVW, typified in broad brush terms by Renault’s Kangoo on one end of the weight scale and Ford’s Transit box van on the other, still stands out as the best performing sector in this year’s West Europe’s vehicle market

|  CAR SALES  | SWEDEN  
Sweden car sales June tax changeSweden | July says all change for higher tax new car market 

Since the start of July, higher taxed conventionally powered cars and diesels in particular are having a hard time wooing the average Swedish new car buyers. One consequence of these steep July 1 vehicle tax hikes, allied to a maximum possible SKR60,000 (€5,800) government grant for a qualifying BEV and PHEV, Sweden’s July sales of plug-ins (BEVs & PHEVs) soared by 107 per cent. For July, expressed in market share terms, plug-ins captured 18.8 per cent compared with 4.6 per cent in July last year

W-European July car salesHot 9% July jump 
in West Europe’s car sales 

With much of Europe sweltering in near record-breaking temperatures, many vehicle makers felt compelled to make hay while the sun shines. Helped by at least one extra working day and partly because of the need to clear stocks of vehicles without the obligatory dual NEDC-WLTP certification before the September 1 deadline, July car sales in Western Europe jumped 9 per cent, according to AID’s own provisional figures

Q1 2018 diesel car sales Western Europe data and trendsDiesel cars out of favour, but have we seen the worst of the plunge?

That is the overriding question on the minds of autoindustry strategists after digesting the very latest statistical news on the current state of West Europe’s previously market-dominating diesel car June’s diesel car market in Western Europe, providing yet another revealing piece in the jigsaw, suggests that for the time being at least, the previously plummeting sales share of diesels now appears to have settled down to a more moderate rate of decline.

|  ELECTRIC CAR SALES  | GLOBAL Q2 |  TESLA
Tesla global Q2 2018 sales vs. JaguarTesla Q2 volume almost equal to Jaguar

Tesla, the world’s most closely followed manufacturer of premium–priced electric cars (BEVs) is already snapping at the heels of UK premium carmaker Jaguar. The question now is, as AID’s segment observers have put it most topically, “based on Tesla’s latest sales surge it is not if Tesla will outsell Jaguar on the global prestige sector sales scene, but how soon”

|  FUEL MIX  | GERMANY
Germany 15 year diesel trendPetrol powered cars make further sharp inroads at expense of sinking diesels

For AID’s perplexed market observers today’s question is not so much whether Germany’s previously long-flourishing domestic market for cutting-edge diesel cars will fade into obscurity, but how soon. 


  | Damaged diesel appears to be undergoing a lull in falling mix at present 
 
| Free fall in UK diesel car sales continued in March

It’s almost as if this is one of the great trade secrets waiting to be discovered, actual UK sales of PHEVs by manufacturer and model are not divulged to the public at large or the media. In the UK the same goes for sales of electric cars (BEVs)
